"Ask and ye shall receive." At least that's the motto that should be associated with Royals rookie pitcher Brandon Finnegan, who's clearly already a pro at fan relations.

When fan Nicholas Knapple hit Finnegan up on Twitter for tickets to Wednesday's American League Championship Series game against the Orioles, he got a reply -- two tickets for him and girlfriend.

It gets even better for Knapple. When he offered to take Finnegan out for some famous KC-style barbecue as a thank-you, Finnegan duly agreed to that too.

We're guessing Knapple might be tweeting the whole roster if the Royals go all the way to the World Series.
